OBITUARY

German Vera Landingin

November 21, 1946January 5, 2021

German Vera Landingin, 74, passed away on January 5, 2021 in Houston, Texas after a prolonged illness. German was born on November 21, 1946 in Bonuan Blue Beach, Dagupan City to Francisco and Petronila Landingin. He was known to many as “Gerry” and was the youngest of his seven siblings. In 1969, he received his Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Drafting at the University of Pangasinan. In 1989, he expanded his education in Business and Technology at the University of Houston and thus began his career with Shell Oil Company. Gerry married his “one and only” Venus Farin Landingin on May 18, 1977. They raised and nurtured two genuine children, Samantha and Apollo Neil. Gerry was actively involved in the Pangasinan Women’s Club of Texas, Ilocano Club of Metro Houston, and was part of the Houston Northwest Filipino community. He took any opportunity to be the center of attention, make you laugh, sing karaoke, capture moments through photos and video, try his luck at the casino, tend to his garden, showcase his art skills, but most of all, spend quality time with family and friends. Gerry also secretly dreamed to be a true cowboy, and he did own all the gear but never a horse. His family pays this tribute to him, ‘Papa was one of the sweetest and caring people you could ever meet. After a warm welcome, he would genuinely open his heart every time anyone would visit at home. He will be deeply missed.’ German Landingin is survived by his wife Venus, daughter Samantha & her husband Gustavo, son Apollo Neil, granddaughter Liliana, sister Elsa Ramos, and brother Francisco Landingin Jr. Preceded in death by his parents, Artemio Landingin, Bromeo Landingin, Cleofe Landingin, and Doris Landingin.

I met Gerry in his first few months in Houston from the PI during Venus baby shower for Samantha. Fortunately they became our neighbors in Briarcreek for about 8 years. And even though we moved to Sugar Land, we still visited each other quite often. Our families have been best friends and like one family for three generations - us, our kids, and our grandchildren! I have unforgettable memories of him like karaoke singing, traveling on vacations together, driving to the casino, spending all our holidays and birthdays and anniversaries together. He was one of if not the best friend I ever had and he is my kumpadre too. I loved his humor - he was always making everybody laugh. I loved his cooking too! He would always extend his help to anyone who needed it. We have been like brothers since we met. I will miss you forever, til we see each other in the next life.
